    Vehicle : 2007 Vectra

    Trim : SRi XP Saphirre Black

    Engine : 2.0 16v Turbo

    Year : 2007

    Mileage : 60k

    Default I've given in! Going To buy a VXR.

    Well, I've had my XP cdti now for over two years, and although it's unique and I'm always the first to highlight the virtu's of a remapped cdti... I cant get the VXR out of my head!

    So, due to a dramatic change in personal circumstances.. I now find myself living only 1 mile from the office rather than 25miles. Done a few insurances quotes and the VXR is coming out pretty much same as what I pay now, if a little lower in some cases?

    So... I'm on the hunt, really want it with afls, and pretty sure on Arden blue, although red a close favourite! Cars I've seen so far have been a bit tatty, or higher mileage and still not managed to drive one? But working on it! Deals are good too.. Great prices, great part ex offers on mine.. I think going from diesel to petrol is stacked in my favour? Everyone seems to go the otherway!

    So to my point.. Any sort of general tips? Or things you can think of would? Or do you know of any good examples out there other than eBay and autotrader offerings etc? I kinda know what I'm looking for in the car... But hunting is a bit of a mine field...

    Thanks for any ideas

    Mike

    Hi Mike,

    First of all well done

    Take a look at my Spoons Guide to the Vectra VXR thread here

    http://www.vxronline.co.uk/forum/sho...t=spoons+guide

    That should help you on your way...

    Then, what budget you looking at?
